Was I abused this whole time and didn't even know? - June 4th 2013, 06:43 PM

Ever since I was born, I was mistreated by others including my family. I was called names like crazy, mental, psychotic, stupid, and a bunch of other names. I was also hit by my Grand-mom, but that was discipline but it hurt a lot. I was also hit by other people outside of my family. It was bullying but it affected me. I then became a bully and started to hit others and treat them the way I was treated to see how they liked it. My Grand-mom who has custody of me calls me names and tells me things like "Why don't you go live with your mom?"

See my mom was sexually and physically abused my my dad. He would force her to have sex with her even if she didn't want to. He would also beat on her and he even tried to killed when my mom was pregnant with me. He tried to shoot her in her stomach.

When I was 6 or 7, my mom met this guy who is now my step-dad. She has two boys by him named Johnny and Jayson. Their my step-brothers and I love them. My step-dad seems to love them more than me. I don't even think he loves me. When my mom, step-dad, and my step-brothers moved in with us in October of 2012 and moved out in April of 2013 because their house was falling apart and she felt that it was unsafe for my brothers. While they were there, he made remarks saying that he wants a biological daughter and my Grand-mom would say John(his name) you have a daughter Ashley. He would say but I want a biological daughter. He also never takes me anywhere but he takes the boys, his children, everywhere. Every time I turn around "Dad where are you going with the boys?" "New York" "Dad where are you going with the boys?" "Philly" "Dad where are you going with the boys?" "Father son picnic" but does he take me places....Hell to the no. He also never buys me anything but he buys them stuff. Like for Christmas, he didn't buy me anything but he brought his real children a shit load of toys and games. What did I get? Some PS3 games from my Grand-mom and two Christmas mugs from my mom. But nothing from him.

Everyone thinks that I'm crazy because of my mom's metal health history. I'm not saying that it's her fault but that's what people think and I'm sick of it. My mom gets treated the same way for no reason. It's not her fault she has mental health issues and it's not my fault either. I just wish that this would all stop. Help please?

The negative stigma associated with mental health really sucks. I wholeheartedly agree with you; it's not your moms fault, nor is it yours. But it's the way that people treat you that has an influence on your mental health. People these days are so ignorant and immature that it's ridiculous. People grow up and raise their kids to be the same way and it just keeps going and going, and that's really unfortunate.

I also have someone like that in my family who won't buy things for someone because they're not blood related. I'm not sure if this is considered abuse but if it is, it's emotional abuse. It's definitely bullying though. I would suggest sitting him down and telling him how he makes you feel if he's the type of person who is open for conversation. If not, try to let your grandmother or mom know about this, it isn't fair. In the long run, I think it's kind of hard to deal with these type of people because they're really set in their ways. Hopefully he'll change for the better.
